Group III mGlu receptor positive allosteric modulator (EC50 values are 108, 125 and 146 nM for mGlu4, mGlu8 and mGlu7 respectively). Exhibits selectivity over a panel of 68 other GPCRs, ion channels and transporters. Potentiates mGlu7-mediated reductions in excitatory post synaptic potentials in hippocampal slices.

The key feature of drug addiction is the inability to stop using a drug despite clear evidence of harm. This poster describes the brain circuits associated with addiction, and provides an overview of the main classes of addictive drugs and the neurotransmitter systems that they target.
Learning & Memory Poster
Recognition memory enables us to make judgements about whether or not we have encountered a particular stimulus before. This poster outlines the cellular mechanisms underlying recognition memory and its links to long-term depression, as well as the use of pharmacological intervention to assess the role of neurotransmitters in recognition memory.
Parkinson's disease (PD) causes chronic disability and is the second most common neurodegenerative condition. This poster outlines the neurobiology of the disease, as well as highlighting current therapeutic treatments for symptomatic PD, and emerging therapeutic strategies to delay PD onset and progression.
